Dit­ting tests As­ton DBR9 ahead of Mas­ters Le­gends

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Ger­man clas­sic sportscar racer Nik Dit­ting had a first out­ing in his re­cently pur­chased As­ton Mar­tin DBR9 at Don­ing­ton Park last week.

Dit­ting, who has pre­vi­ously raced an Alfa Romeo GTA, Ford GT40 and Chevron B16, is plan­ning to race the car in next sea­son’s new Mas­ters En­durance Le­gends se­ries.

Ex­pe­ri­enced sportscar racer Sam Han­cock gave the GT1 car its shake­down, be­fore Dit­ting took over.

The car is be­ing run by Tim Samways, who has also tended it dur­ing its stay in a pri­vate col­lec­tion over the last few years. “It had been in Brazil and hardly raced – I be­lieve its last race was in 2006 at In­ter­la­gos,” said Samways.
